Handbook of electrical hazards and accidents by L. A Geddes( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and Italian and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is written mainly for attorneys, physicians, and investigators who are concerned with accidents associated with electric current. It is based on approximately 50 years of personal research, augmented by experience in teaching medical and biomedical engineering students and as an expert witness in litigation involving electrical injury. The material is presented in two ways: non-technically, for attorneys and physicians, and technically, for their expert witnesses and engineers. Since there is no typical electrical accident, the accidents described and the material presented in the chapters are selected to aid the reader in explaining the cause of any particular electrical accident."--Provided by publisher
The direct and indirect measurement of blood pressure by L. A Geddes( Book )

11 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cardiovascular devices and their applications by L. A Geddes( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Handbook of blood pressure measurement by L. A Geddes( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This splendid guide to the measurement of blood pressure is the best single source of information available to medical students, nurses, physicians, psychologists, and technical people in the health care field. Hailed in its earlier edition as "a gem" (Hospital Times), "valuable and thoroughly readable" (American Journal of Medical Sciences), and "highly recommended" (British Journal of Anesthesiology), the Handbook of Blood Pressure Measurement describes the physiology, equipment, history, and engineering of blood pressure measurement. It is indispensable to any medical professional who wants to know more about and understand this crucial and widely performed measurement
Medical device accidents : with illustrative cases by L. A Geddes( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication explores accidents that occur through the use of medical devices. Each chapter follows the same format: a presentation of basic principles of a device or procedure, followed by possible accidents that take place through misuse or malfunction. Case studies and examples throughout the text illustrate and enliven the distinctive purpose of this singular text. This resource guides those professionals or specialists concerned with medical device accidents - attorneys, expert witnesses, clinical engineers, nurses, physicians, manufacturers, and designers of new medical devices

Medical and bioengineering aspects of electrical injuries by Raymond M Fish( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive guide will provide you with an in-depth look into the medical and bioengineering aspects of electrical injuries. The book is divided into five sections. Each section outlines a different aspect of electrical injuries. Section one covers the medical aspects of these injuries with a focus on diagnosis and treatment, section two discusses the bioengineering aspects with an emphasis on electrical theory and human physiology, section three goes into greater detail about the injuries that can occur to different anatomic locations of the body, section four describes the source of electricity that can lead to injury, and section five is devoted to accident reconstruction

A line operated electromyograph by L. A Geddes( )

2 editions published in 1953 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early in the War (1939-45), the value of Electromyography for the diagnosis of the extent of nerve injuries was recognized by Dr. Herbert H. Jasper who gained the support of the Associate Committee on Army Medical Research and the Subcommittee on Traumatic Injuries of the Nervous System. This organization supported the research and development under his directorship at the Montreal Neurological Institute."--

A study of the relationship of atrial activation to the body surface electrocardiogram by Marvin Harold Hinds( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

P waves from the electrocardiograms of 40 normal dogs were presented and analysed statistically. The waveforms were divided into two groups; those inscribed when the heart rate was fast (during the inspiratory phase of respiration), and those recorded when the rate was relatively slow (during the expiratory phase). Although no correlation could be established between absolute heart rates and P-wave amplitude, or between P-wave amplitude and absolute changes in heart rate, there was a close relationship between the configuration of the P wave and the relative slowing or acceleration of the heart. During periods when the heart was increasing in rate from a slower value, the P wave changed from a low amplitude bifid or notched form to a peaked upright wave. Conversely, when the rate was fast and then slowed, the P wave became reduced in amplitude and showed an increased tendency toward notching or bifidity. By means of implanted quadripolar electrodes attached in the S-A nodal area of the right atrium, it was possible to determine the approximate location of the pacemaker. Shifts in pacemaker site of up to 1.8 cm were observed. These shifts in site of origin of excitation were concurrent with changes in P-wave configuration. Infusion of isoproterenol increased the mean heart rate, but respiratory sinus arrhythmia persisted in most dogs until a rate of approximately 150-160 beats per minute was reached. Shifts in the pacemaker site and changes in P-wave configuration were observed throughout these periods of sinus arrhythmia. It appeared that the circulating catecholamine level influenced the depolarization rate of all potential pacemaker cells in general, whereas vagal control selectively determined which area of the S-A node actually depolarized first and hence determined the actual pacemaker location.
